Ingredients

Optional Chocolate Topping

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line the cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. Mix the egg and coconut sugar together for 2-3 minutes until the mixture lightens in color. This adds air and volume to the cookie, and it helps breaks down the egg protein to help bind the cookie together.
  3. Add the vanilla and baking soda and lightly mix.
  4. Add the almond butter, just until mixed. No more than a few seconds. Do not over mix.
  5. Use medium cookie scoop and drop by rounded tablespoon onto cookie sheet.
  6. Bake 8-10 minutes until edges start to lightly brown.
  7. Once cookies are cooled, add chocolate topping to cookies as desired (dipped, drizzle, sandwiched, etc).

Optional Chocolate Topping

Melt together chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwaving in 30 second intervals to not burn the chocolate is best.

Notes

How to Measure

Almond butter  is hard to measure in regular measuring cups. I use an adjustable measuring cup because you can push the almond butter completely out.
